I would love to take you on a carriage
tour of Charleston, South Carolina.
We’ll pass all my favorite spots –
and maybe even some of yours!
Charleston landmarks and historic attractions are beautifully highlighted in a new children’s book written and illustrated by local designer and author Andrew Barton. “Heyward the Horse Loves Charleston, Of Course!” is the tale of Heyward M. Pinckney IV, a carriage horse in downtown Charleston.
Heyward takes visitors on a carriage ride past a variety of Charleston area landmarks and attractions, including Riley Waterfront Park, Rainbow Row, historic churches and the Charleston City Market.
With his magical bow tie, Heyward is able to fly his carriage over the Holy City, pointing out the marshes, plantations and the beaches.
Local children will love seeing the landmarks they pass each day, and the book is a perfect souvenir for children who want to recall their Charleston visit during their evening storytime.
Andrew Barton is a designer, illustrator and children’s book author in Charleston, S.C. He lives in West Ashley with his wife and two young children. He enjoys history, painting and the outdoors.
